Pop-up restaurant ‘Daily Spoon’ will be opening at 25-34 Jackson Avenue.
The restaurant will serve modern Asian food, said owner Tristan Chin-Fatt to The Court Square Blog.
Chin-Fatt and partner Deon Whiskey are also the owners and founders of Destination Dumplings, a modern take on dumplings, which has been featured in popups at Governor’s Ball, Smorgasburg (Williamsburg, World Trade Center and Prospect Park), and CitiField, among other locations.
Both have cooked in Japanese, New American, Mexican, Italian and French styles.
“The influence of flavors is drawn from many cultures and countries, our style is a representation of not only our own mixed heritage but the city which we grew up in and both still live today,” Chin-Fatt said.
Daily Spoon is aiming to open in the next month. It takes over for Subway, which closed earlier in the year.1
